Just a few days in Italy can leave a lasting mark. In Tuscany and the Cinque Terre, there’s enough beauty to satisfy your appetite for true Italian charm. During this six-day road trip, you’ll shirk the usual Tuscan destinations of Florence and Siena in favour of the small town of Lucca, located at the foot of the Apennines. Lucca encourages you to live to a more peaceful rhythm, from walking in the shade of palm trees to relaxing in Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, built in the shape of the Roman amphitheatre that once stood there. You’ll then move on to the famous Cinque Terre villages. Your base will be in the hills of Levanto, where fishermen supply the restaurants with the day’s catch and wine flows freely from the region’s surrounding countryside.
This entire area, including land and sea, is protected as a national park and during a sunset boat trip, you’ll have the opportunity to appreciate its breathtaking beauty from a new perspective. In both destinations, our local Concierge will be on hand to recommend the best restaurants so you can make the most of this region’s incredible cuisine.


Everything is 100% tailored to you


Your Italian break begins with a flight to Pisa, which takes just over two hours. When you arrive, pick up your hire car for the next few days and head straight to Lucca, a stunning riverside city located around 30 minutes from Pisa. You’ll spend two nights here in an elegant hunting lodge in the heart of olive groves, woods and green hills against a backdrop of Monte Pisano.



Protected by brick ramparts adorned with greenery, Lucca has been miraculously preserved over the years, and as a result has retained its medieval character. Pink and ochre constructions, Romanesque churches, the astonishing Guinigi Tower and the Roman amphitheatre make it all the more attractive. You’ll discover Lucca by bike today as you cycle through the historical centre which is completely pedestrianised aside from the cycle lanes. A private guide will lead the way around this city which is known for its churches and distinctive olive oil.



Just over 60 miles separate Lucca in Tuscany from Levanto in Liguria, which lies very close to the Cinque Terre. As you drive between these two towns today, take a moment to admire the immense marble quarries of Carrara along the way. When you arrive in Levanto, head to your charming guest house in the surrounding hills. Here, in the small medieval village of Chiesanuova, the air is fresh and the views magnificent. All that’s left to do for the rest of the day is relax and enjoy the vista of the valley and the glittering sea.

DAYS 4 & 5


You’ll have the next two days to spend soaking up the beauty of this magnificent Italian region however you please. If you like, we can arrange for you to go on a private hike through the Cinque Terre National Park. We’ll also organise for you to take a sunset boat trip with a private skipper. Enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Cinque Terre’s colourful houses perched above the sparkling sea as you head past the charming villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. As the sun melts into the water, watch the rocky cliffs take on an enchanting amber glow. A sampling of local produce completes this magical sunset outing.



Sadly, the time has come for you to make the journey home. Drive back to Pisa airport to return your rental car and board your flight back to the UK.

A la carte


More than just a guide, your companion on this two-hour walk will be a local who is keen to show you Pisa’s most authentic side. They’ll introduce you to residents and show you things you wouldn’t have thought to seek out on this tour that’s planned around what you want to get out of the city.


This UNESCO World Heritage site boasts a typical Mediterranean landscape: weathered pines line the hills that descend steeply into water that’s full of small coves and crevices. Above all, this area is known for its five villages: Monterosso, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Riomaggiore, linked together by picturesque paths. This private guided hike leads you between Manarola and Volastra with sumptuous sea panoramas along the way.
